At Equine Challenge™ we believe forage specificity is
paramount before horses get sick, not after! Sadly, more
times than not we consider diet specificity when our horses
become sick and we want them to recover functionally and
Equine Challenge™ is pro-active nutrition which provides the
basic building blocks for day to day life and allows the
flexibility to meet the nutritional needs of horses, regardless
of how little or how much is physically demanded.
Not only are our ingredients synergistically proportioned
in the bag, they are synergistically balanced to compliment
whatever forage you feed your horse, be it alfalfa, grass or
If you feed grass or oat hay, Equine Challenge-Grass™ is the
product for your horse. If on the other hand you feed alfalfa,
Equine Challenge-Alfalfa™ is the product for your horse.
Equine Challenge™ is a milled food grade Flaxseed based
forage specific, highly bio-available daily vitamin, mineral
trace element and digestive probiotic supplement.
During milling we use a high speed micronizing technique which slices the flaxseed instead of crushing, avoiding rupturing the fat cells at a lower temperature. This yields a very stable product that has a shelf life of 6 months or more with reasonable storage.
Old milling techniques include grinding or crushing the flaxseed given the aggressive rolling mills, hammer mills and burr mills. These old techniques crushed the fat cells, producing a great deal of heat resulting in an oxidation or rancidity of the flax. Most of the bad things you hear about flax go back to the old days and the old ways.
Equine Challenge Supplements™ contain no byproducts or fillers such as Distiller's Dried Grain
solutes, ground alfalfa, wheat millrun, wheat middlings, soymeal, beet pulp, rice bran, soybean or oat hulls. Equine Challenge Supplement™ products contain no corn, no wheat, no alfalfa, no soy beans, no molasses, no soy oil, no mineral oil, no vegetable oil and no corn oil. The oil in Equine Challenge Supplements™ is the oil naturally found in Flaxseed, primarily Omega 3's and Omega 6's.
Equine Challenge Supplements™ are synergistically proportioned to provide the nutritional building blocks and maintain the metabolic balance of your horse, regardless of whether you feed alfalfa, grass or oat hay.
